Bringing a friend to freedom, then shot by whom?

This is just crazy, an Italian intelligence officer is killed while transporting a recently freed hostage. American troops shot and killed him, on accident.

Somehow the U.S. statement (cited on NPR site) is lacking:

We regret the loss of life.

I'm sure it's crazy over there and hard to know what's up and down. This makes me wonder, again, why we're over there.
